All Mount St. Joseph University students are expected to have health insurance as required by law.

Mount St. Joseph University expects that all students have medical insurance as mandated by the Affordable Care Act. Many students may remain on family medical insurance policies but for those that do not, the purchase of an individual health insurance plan is necessary.

Students without access to a group or family medical plan can purchase insurance coverage by accessing the Health Insurance Marketplace. To obtain more information about the requirements of the Affordable Care Act and purchasing health insurance via the Marketplace visit

Residence Hall students are required to provide proof of health insurance coverage on the Medical History Form (Form 9) within the enrollment kit. Student athletes must also provide proof of health insurance to the Athletics department at the beginning of the academic year. Additionally, some academic departments (for instance the School of Health Sciences) require students to provide proof of health insurance as well.

If you have questions regarding health insurance, please call the Health Services at 513-244-4769.
